My apologies, I reinstalled with the snapshot Dated 2 August and all the buttons work perfectly.
I did however find a fantastic little Air Keyboard by Cideko http://www.cideko.com/pro_con.php?id=3
. It’s cheap and works almost perfectly. There are no Function buttons but the multimedia buttons all work. The only thing missing once again my personal nightmare, the F7 function. It has a few extra buttons (www, mail, pc, magnify, calc windows key) which are events 178, 236, 26, 41, 161 and 115.
I created a new template following the "Creating a Device Template for a Remote that uses the kernel input subsystem" wiki and the MX Air Template and mapped the keys codes accordingly.
But it doesn't work, is there anything else I need to do it check?
